Dude Looks Like a Lady

In our Bible study last night we looked at 1 Corinthians 11 and saw how the blurring of gender roles and distinctions can be a big problem, even in the church. The main summary statement we used to help us understand this passage was, “the Church glorifies God when it follows the model of the Trinity rather than the trends of the culture.”

One of the examples I used was from a few years ago when boys would wear their girlfriend’s jeans to school. Just when I was beginning to think hope pray that this trend was a thing of the past, I came across this gem today from the New York Times. Al Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary gives his excellent commentary here.

Can’t we just go back to the good old days when kids just wore gang attire to school?

Caring for the Orphan: The Local Angle

Not too far up the road from those of us in Jackson, GA there is a wonderful opportunity to minister to the fatherless. The Georgia Baptist Children’s Home is doing a lot to help orphans and a variety of other kids in need.

I posted them earlier, but just to be sure, here are other links where you can find a lot of information that will help you know how to better carry the love of Jesus to some of the 143 million orphans in the world.
